The Affiliate Summit Newcomer Program (formerly Affiliate Summit Mentor Program) helps connect first time attendees with Affiliate Summit veterans. Veterans volunteer their time to share their past experience ideas and information to help newcomers optimize their time at the conference. The Affiliate Summit Newcomer Program is headed up by affiliate Jen Goode.
How it works:
- Veterans are asked to have a 15 minute call and/or email exchange leading up to the conference.
- In return, newcomers are asked to treat their veteran volunteer to a meal at the conference.
- As a thank you to veterans, Affiliate Summit hosts a webpage recognizing all participating veterans with a link back to their site.
The newcomer’s meet up was held last night in the room right across from the ASE blogger lounge. It was great to network with all the first time Affiliate Summit attendees and connect with some of the old ones as well.
